I have been working for the past couple of weeks with a wonderful graphic designer named Kirsten from MorningstarArtistry to create an image that is just right. Being as in love with Etsy as I currently am, I of course found her through her Etsy store. Kirsten was quick, responsive, and helpful through the entire process, and I am really pleased with the result.

Kirsten also designed an Etsy store banner for the upcoming grand opening of Happy Banyan scheduled for October 5, 2009. I think she did a great job on this too:
Please let me know what you think about the logo and the store banner. I can't wait to hear your opinions!
And check back often - coming soon is the Story of the Happy Banyan, why it was chosen as our company name, and what it represents.
